The Cosmosphere International SciEd Center & Space Museum includes a collection of U.S. space artifacts second only to the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, and the largest collection of Russian space artifacts outside of Moscow. This unique collection allows the Cosmosphere to tell the story of the Space Race better than any museum in the world while offering fully immersive education experiences that meet the Next Generation Science Standards and introduce students to the power of wondering—asking the critical questions that lead to discovery. The Cosmosphere also features the Carey Digital Dome Theater offering documentary showings daily and recently-released feature films on weekends; the newly renovated Justice Planetarium and Dr. Goddard’s Lab, where visitors experience live science demonstrations daily.
Great place with tons to see for science and non-science buffs! The only place in the USA to house Russian satellites, planes and artifacts. It also has a piece of the Berlin Wall! Great self-explanatory walk-through (lot to read though). Inexpensive tickets. Great for kids and adults alike. Must visit if you're in town. Takes about 2 hours to finish the whole tour. Ample parking!
A fantastic space museum filled with unique artifacts and exhibits. It also has a plethora of history and facts within. Definitely worth checking out. Good for all ages!
The documentary (dream big) was great but the other one (aircraft carrier) was Okay (not as good). The museum artifacts were amazing to look at and Dr. Goddard's laboratory was a neat little show even for adults! It was unfortunate that today both the simulator and the planetarium were not working but they refunded $12 off our ticket to make up for it.
Great place for history on space program. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Lots of very good exhibits, some unique only to the Cosmosphere.
I visit every chance that I get. A must visit for any space buff. A great museum for adults and children alike.
